    Description

    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Food Administration, 1918). Poster (36" X 58") "They Are Giving All, Will You Send Them Wheat?" Harvey Dunn Artwork.
    When President Woodrow Wilson appointed Herbert Hoover as head of the Food Administration, Hoover designed an effort that would appeal to the American sense of volunteerism. Hoover and his administration proclaimed that "food will win the war." Many posters were produced advertising patriotism and asking for sacrifices that would increase production and decrease the amount of food consumption on the home front. This poster by Harvey Dunn (1884-1952) was aimed at conserving wheat, and depicts soldiers with bayonets charging across a snowy, frigid landscape. No touchup has been applied to this professionally linen-backed poster, which shows mild edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, pinholes, and small border tears. Very Fine- on Linen.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
